Signifcant American artist
A brief but affectionate look at George Bellows (died 1925), a great American artist . 20 single-page illustrations of his artwork (unfortunately all in black & white). His work seems timeless and “real”, especially those dealing with working men and children. His paintings and lithographs today command high prices.
